Lansing, Michigan [RESULTS]

Postby chickpea » Mon Nov 23, 2009 5:16 pm

We had a good turnout on Saturday! Six people joined in as we sketched at Roma Bakery, the City Market and the Potter Park Zoo.

I had a great time but find that I don't have much to show, sketch-wise. :crazy: Nevertheless, I scanned my little scribbles and gathered them together by subject...

Great work. The figure drawings and the animals are both very expressive. I especially like the ostrich.

Thank you!

I really enjoyed the ostriches...they were actually quite fascinating. On reflection, I'm sorry I didn't go back and draw them more. One in particular was very interested in the 'audience' and kept walking over to the fence and peering at us... :)

So I was unable to go out with the others as I had to work - photographing the Michigan State football game. It wasn't much of a game in the second half and I wished I could have sketched more. But I managed to do three quick ones. First is a view of the stadium from the press box. Second is just a quick outline of the Lansing skyline from the press box. Third is the TV camera located in the north end zone which I sketched during half time. These are little more hurried than I like to be, but it was fun. I am hoping I can join the others on the next one.

two very different and great set sketches .I really like the people in the first drawings . You have captured their characters inthe linework.

I think that it was great that you managed to sketchcrawl even though you had to work - that is a good use of time! Congratulations

Hi!

Finally I'm home and now I can share my sketches from the Marathon.

Thank you all for being so nice at me that time.
